After some 20 months it's nearly there! Only some final weathering, a couple of small additions and a little retouching to do.

Only internal photos in the folder. I might try to take some external photos against a suitable background if I can find 2 other people to help me carry it out the house!

No rest for the wicked, on with the 1/8 T34-85.

Best wishes.

One Great job on that Big Panther Trackpins. that is one huge model. Are you going to make some kind of a table or something to display it or does it have it's own garage?

Hi Mike,

It's in On the Workbench. I have also written a 10 page A4 script on how I rebuilt it with hints and pointers for prospective large scale tank modellers.

There are also very frank and honest opinions on this particular manufacturer.

Jim thinks the best way forward is to put it all in a new folder. I will leave that to Jim, compared to him I'm stone age!

Very best wishes.

Peter,
Nice work on the camo and weathering. It will be nice to see some outdoor pictures. Maybe you can find some scale trees? Lol

Here's the link to the workbench area (this may change soon though).

Thanks,
Jim
